In an effort to act responsibly and proactively to protect the well-being of our members, staff, volunteers, and homeowners as well as the 26,000 visitors who travel from all over the world to enjoy the gardens and hospitality of Virginia, the Garden Club of Virginia made the difficult decision to cancel Historic Garden Week 2020.
Plans are underway for Historic Garden Week 2021. Please visit this page or our Facebook and Instagram pages for more information about the 2021 tour as it becomes available. Thank you for your support of Historic Garden Week and the Garden Club of Virginia.
Historic Garden Week of Virginia
Each spring, The Garden Club of Virginia welcomes visitors to over 250 of Virginia’s most beautiful gardens, homes and historic landmarks during “America’s Largest Open House.” This 8-day statewide event provides visitors a unique opportunity to see unforgettable gardens at the peak of Virginia’s springtime color, as well as beautiful houses sparkling with over 2,000 flower arrangements created by Garden Club of Virginia members.
how it helps
Proceeds from the statewide event fund the restoration and preservation of Virginia’s historic gardens, and provide research fellowships for building comprehensive and ongoing records of historic gardens and landscapes in the Commonwealth. Since the first statewide tour, over $17 million has been contributed to these worthwhile causes.
